If you play with mods or custom content in The Sims 4, you know the hell of update day, especially if you?ve been playing the game for a long time.
As your mods folder grows, so does the risk of custom content breaking or things becoming unmanageable. There are already a few tools like The Sims 4 Tray Importer and the Sims Mod Assistant both make it much easier to find broken CC.
Currently, though, the process for general content management is somewhat cumbersome. That is all about to change thanks to a new tool released on Mod The Sims recently.
Simply called Sims 4 Mod Manager, and very much still in an early phase of development, it already has the potential to save hours of time, by making it simpler and faster to quickly delete custom content you no longer want.
As somebody who has previously reached levels of such frustration that deleting the entire Sims 4 Mods folder and starting over, this app will be a lifesaver. Filters make it super easy to find what you’re looking for – whether that’s a Create-a-Sim item or something else.
The screenshot below shows a general view of some filtering options available for easily managing custom content in The Sims 4.
The Sims 4 Mod/CC Manager also makes it easy to enable and disable Sims 4 custom content and mods from one central place, rather than having to move things in and out of your Mods folder. While it works best if you already have a structured system in place, the filters will save your sanity if your current system follows the chameleon on a Rubik’s Cube approach.
We have tested both the deleting of content and turning some custom content on and off, and both work like a treat.
That said, as noted by the dev, the only way to improve is by players testing it and offering feedback. As per the official notes over on Mod The Sims:
The program is still very new and has not been tested by many users. Therefore I would be very grateful for feedback, bug reports and ideas to improve the application.
Future plans for the Sims 4 Mod/CC Manager include the ability to easily find broken or duplicated custom content as well as a filter for catalog items – which is already in development.
